.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some worries taking into account that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
